People go there seeking beauty, and peace. Yet they rarely stop at a ridge along the main drive, off to the right of the first serious curve, where beauty is nearer and so is peace; where a short, quiet walk through leafy, hilly woods leads to a steep drop; and where, as a result, looking out is just as glorious as looking up.

You can even see the sunset.

Turning down a dream editing job right out of college, Dan instead went into marketing and media sales to better cover the rent. Stints at Spin Magazine and Yahoo! followed. But he kept scratching that writing-and-editing itch—first on the side, then at a couple of startups. Dan is now scratching it as Daily Nutmeg's editor.
